[asdf-devel] can't run quicklisp with asdf 2.28 on CCL (upgrage issue?)

the failure you found seems to be a case of
quicklisp compiling asdf without having loaded it as source first.

To compile asdf even when a previous asdf was loaded,
it is currently necessary to first load asdf.lisp as source.
quicklisp (require)'s the previous asdf,
then compiles the new one without loading it.
That won't work.

To make it work, I would essentially have to have
each and every form in asdf.lisp wrapped in an eval-when.

I suppose I could do just that;
it wouldn't be worse than loading asdf.lisp before compiling it,
and it would be simpler for Zach and other people.
